"End Israeli Blockade - Now!"
The Rev. Munib Younan, bishop, Evangelical Lutheran Bishop in Jordan and the Holy Land has called Israel's blockade of Gaza "illegal collective punishment, an immoral act in violation of the basic human and natural laws as well as International Law. It cannot be tolerated anymore." He said, "The siege over Gaza should end now."
The Bishop says that the blockade "imprisoned" 1.5 million people "without proper food or medicine." There was also no electricity.
"To deny children and civilians their necessary basic commodities are not the ways to security but rather throw the region into further and more dangerous deterioration. This siege will not guarantee the end to rocket firing, but will only increase the bitterness and suffering and invite more revenge, while the innocents keep dying," said the Bishop.
